Critical Focus: The Black and White Photographs of Harvey Wilson Richards

Estuary Press and The Harvey Richards Media Archive started their existence with the 1986 book publication of  Critical Focus, the Black and White Photographs of Harvey Wilson Richards (Estuary Press, 1986).  This book brought together the black and white photos that Harvey had developed in his own darkroom in the garage and used to publicize events and movements that he was trying to help.  See the blog post below for more.

Since 1986, Harvey’s entire photo collection of many thousands of photos, color and black and white, have come into the archive. Selected photos are offered in photo galleries on the web site, including images of the Bay Area peace movement, the civil rights movement in Mississippi and in the Bay Area, and California Farm Workers, West Coast  logging, mining, and USSR sections.
